Stainless Steel

Location: Springfield Expo Center at 635 E. St. Louis St.

This sculpture represents Springfield’s evolving identity. Stainless steel is a tribute to our community’s enduring fabrication traditions and our ability to continue constructing the future. A rising moon over the stars, the time capsule, serves to offer Springfield’s past to its future. The Ozark’s stalwart pride and strength of human spirit is represented by the vertical orientation of the sculpture. Spin the star? No telling what direction your interaction with Springfield will take you.
